Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

This May Be Sappy, But I Do Not Care....

Here's a little known secret about me. When I was in my 20s (prior to meeting Marc and up to our engagement), I taught 3rd grade Sunday School at church. I did this for probably 6-7 years. I LOVED doing it. It's something I hope to be able to someday again. I'm just not able to right now. That age of kids is fantastic. I loved the things they talked about. There's one particular day I remember. One little girl, L, wanted to bring cookies the following week for her birthday. I told if her mom was willing to make them (which I later did ask her mom personally), she could bring some. The reason L game me for wanting to have cookies: "My mom makes the BEST chocolate chip cookies." At that point in time, I was no where near marriage, but I knew I wanted to be married and have kids someday. I VERY distinctly remember thinking, "I hope my kids think my cookies are the best someday and want me to make them for their classes." WELL, that time, my friends, is now. SO, I will soak up this time in life all that I can. At this point in time, Luke LOVES my chocolate chip cookies. He think they're fantastic. He tells me this no fewer than several times/week. Tomorrow, Luke's signed up for snacks for his preschool class. Throughout this past year, I've actually gotten somewhat creative with snacks and made various snacks to correspond with their letter of the week. BUT, this week (Letter "R"), the kiddos in his classes are getting chocolate chip cookies. That would be simply because Luke requested them and told me that he loved them! Being a mom sure has advantages! And, this pic is actually from back in December, but I LOVE it! Luke likes to eat his cookies just like his Daddy -- leaning up against one of the kitchen counters! I don't know if my cookies are the world's greatest cookies or not, but my son thinks so! AND, I'm going with that!
